Ann & Autumn

In the Spring of 2017, Minerva BC received a compelling Learning to Lead™ application from a high school student in Kamloops. Autumn Walkem, in Grade 11 at the time, expressed a deep interest in developing her confidence, using her voice, and learning about her own potential for leadership. There was a personal stake for Autumn, who wanted to better represent her indigenous community and “be a voice to protect the earth”.

Donor Spotlight: Ann Naymie

In this edition of Donor Spotlight, we’d like to introduce Ann Naymie. Ann was looking to fund a Learning to Lead™ scholarship for a recipient that she felt would most positively benefit from the experience, someone that would go on to truly make a difference in the world. We matched Ann to Autumn Walkem, and the connection was instantaneous.

Donor Spotlight: Chad Bentley

In this edition of Donor Spotlight, we’d like to introduce a remarkable individual, Chad Bentley. Chad will be competing in the Epic 5 Ultra Triathalon Challenge, an incredible adventure that will take him to Hawaii to compete in five Ironman competitions in just five days(!)

In Memory of Russ Cook

Today, we’re remembering Russ, and we know you are too. Russ was a huge part of Minerva BC. As a board member, friend, and mentor, he changed our organization and influenced our lives with his generosity, thoughtful leadership and willingness to ask tough questions.
